One adult and six children are in hospital with undetermined injuries after a grain truck collided with a van near Portage late Friday afternoon.
The driver of the grain truck has been treated and released, according to Portage RCMP.
The initial investigation indicated that the 1997 Mack grain truck collided head on with the 1999 minivan, which was carrying one adult and six children, just after 4 p.m.
PTH 240 from Highway 1 to Highway 331 has now reopened, RCMP said.
Alcohol was not a factor in the collision, police said.
Police continue to investigate.
